Do you know what palliative homecare is?

First, it's care that is provided in your home environment. Second, it is care that manages your pain and keeps you as comfortable as possible. Unlike hospice care, palliative homecare doesn't require a terminal diagnosis of 6 months or less to live. If you have any of the following, please don't hesitate to call us and see if you qualify:

-Patients with chronic, severe or unmanaged pain.
-Patients with chronic or advanced stages disease such as CHF, COPD, Cancer (all types), Diabetes, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Kidney Disease, Liver Disease, MS, Parkinson's, Stroke, Sickle Cell Anemia, Huntington's Disease, HIV/AIDS, ALS.
-Patients not medically eligible for Hospice care or have a prognosis of greater than 6 months.
-Patients eligible for Hospice but the patient or family is not ready or accepting of Hospice services.
-Patients that have improved and are being discharged from Hospice services.
-Patients for which it takes a taxing effort to leave the home.

-Greg Poulos, Chaplain (InTeliCare Hospice- Novi)
